SQL server database size difference issue.
When we checked SQL database size using options, we found varying difference and need help to understand why this difference and which size to consider as actual database size from SharePoint migration perspective as we need to consider database size as well when estimating project cost.
Please find below our observations. This is SharePoint Content database which stores documents, list items.
File explorer shows 104 GB (MDF)
From SQL SSMS shows 106.5 GB (MDF)
From STSADM shows 100.5 GB - This is SharePoint command to check database size.
From Content Matrix shows 105.3 GB - This value we got from migration tool.
